1981 Lotus Eclat Series Two 2.2 For Sale

The Series Two Eclat retains the funky seventies wedge styling of the earlier cars, but has significant upgrades that make it a usable classic or even a daily driver. The 2.2 litre Lotus 912 engine delivers more torque than earlier versions, and in addition the Series Two has a robust Getrag five speed gearbox, a galvanised chassis, and electric motors for the pop up headlamps. This car has done about 102,000 miles but has benefitted from a bottom end overhaul, a new clutch, and rebuilds of the twin Dellorto carbs, along with de-snagging of electrics and other bits and bobs. The car has electronic ignition. The black and gold JPS colour scheme was probably added by a dealer as the factory did not do a JPS Eclat. Most of the paint is in good condition, apart from some cracking on the bonnet and some scratches on the aftermarket boot spoiler. The aftermarket sunroof doesn't leak! The car starts well and is fun to drive, with a rorty sound, light but precise steering, and proper Lotus nimbleness. The alloys are in good condition and the tyres are Falkens that have only done about 1000 miles since new. The car has been run on V Power and 20 50 oil. It does about 25 MPG. The interior is in black and grey tweed which has worn well, with just a couple of small areas of repair or wear. If you wanted to make this car look great then a retrim in a pale leather would be cool, but it's fine as it is. The carpets are recent and the headlining is pretty good, with just a bit of sag towards the rear of the car. All instruments and electrics work, although the rear demister is a bit 80s. The car has a good quality Blaupunkt stereo. This car is a lot of fun and has been reliable in daily use over the last couple of months. It needs just a bit of tidying up to make it a very good example of a rare and underrated Lotus. Now that Esprits cost megabucks, interest is turning to the formerly neglected Elites and Eclats, so this car could be one to hold its money and maybe appreciate in value. MOT to July 2018. The car is usually in north London but sometimes in south Oxfordshire.
